Time to replenish the stash

Well, I did not realize how low I had gotten on my birthday cards...so, luckily, I had this paper from Paper Addiction
. Isn't that the perfect name for a business? I know I am totally addicted to paper! Anyway, this paper is from the Imaginisce line...All Kinds of Happy.
It is really nice 2 sided paper which made these cards so easy to do. No Stamping, just used the 2 sides to put the cards together.





This next card was made using paper from S.E.I....Dill Blossom. Again this is a 2 sided paper which makes things so easy. I used one side for the background. Then I cut a frame and some flowers using my sizzix dies...stamped on the dp and embossed with clear ep powder.



This next card was made with dp from Target. I also used my SU linen stamp to stamp on white cardstock in close to cocoa and then stamped the leaf with craft close to cocoa and added a glittery embossing powder.



Last week, or was it the week before? Not sure, but at some point Splitcoast had a technique posted for this stand up card. I never got around to posting it, so here it is.



Still with me?
Well, I have finally made it to 10,000+ hits! I am laughing as I type this because I have watched other blogs soar in such a short amount of time and I had to crawl every step of the way to get to 10k. And it is quite possible that 9,900 of them were me checking to see if anyone had visited me! LOL!
But, for those who have, THANK YOU SO MUCH for helping to make me feel like my population of friends has grown! Wouldn't it be fun if we could all get together?

But, since we cannot, in order to show my appreciation, here is the blog candy:



There are lots of cute Christmas papers, 2 Papertrey boxes, 2 Papertrey tins, velvet ribbon, sizzix stamps, rubons, a whole stack of chipboard coasters, etc.

Just leave a comment and I will pick the winner Sunday night!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
